Flavoprotein monooxygenases, a diverse class of oxidative biocatalysts.
TLDR
An inventory of known flavoprotein monooxygenases belonging to these different enzyme subclasses is provided and the biocatalytic potential of a selected number of flavop protein monooxyGENases is highlighted. Expand
Identification of a Baeyer–Villiger monooxygenase sequence motif
TLDR
Using newly characterized BVMO sequences, a BV MO‐identifying sequence motif is uncovered: FXGXXXHXXXW(P/D). Expand
Flavin dependent monooxygenases.
TLDR
An update of the classification of flavin-dependent monooxygenases is presented and the latest advances in the understanding of their catalytic and structural properties are summarized. Expand
Evaluation of the effect of germination on phenolic compounds and antioxidant activities in sorghum varieties.
TLDR
The screening of 50 sorghum varieties showed that, on average, germination did not affect the content in total phenolic compounds but decreased the content of proanthocyanidins, 3-deoxyanthocyanids, and flavan-4-ols, which are useful indicators for the selection of sorghums for food and agronomic properties.

Phenol Hydroxylase from Bacillus thermoglucosidasius A7, a Two-protein Component Monooxygenase with a Dual Role for FAD*
TLDR
A novel phenol hydroxylase (PheA) that catalyzes the first step in the degradation of phenol in Bacillus thermoglucosidasius A7 is described and is the first member of a newly recognized family of short-chain flavin reductases that use FAD both as a substrate and as a prosthetic group. Expand
The growing VAO flavoprotein family.
TLDR
This review reports on the catalytic properties of some newly discovered VAO family members and their mode of flavin binding, and some VAO-type aldonolactone oxidoreductases favor the non-covalent binding of the flavin cofactor. Expand
l‐Galactono‐γ‐lactone dehydrogenase from Arabidopsis thaliana, a flavoprotein involved in vitamin C biosynthesis
TLDR
The present study provides the first biochemical characterization of AtGALDH and some active site variants and the Leu56 variants showed remarkable differences in Michaelis constants for both l‐galactono‐1,4‐lactone and l‐gulono‐ 1, 4‐lactsone and released their FAD’cofactor more easily than wild‐type AtGalDH. Expand
Degradation of 3,4‐Dichloro‐ and 3,4‐Difluoroaniline by Pseudomonas fluorescens 26‐K
TLDR
3,4‐Dichloro‐ and 3, 4‐difluoroanilines were degraded by Pseudomonas fluorescens 26‐K under aerobic conditions and the presence of 3‐chloro‐4‐hydroxyaniline as a metabolite suggested that 3,4-DCA degradation pathway includes dehalogenation and hydroxylation of aromatic ring followed by its subsequent cleaving by C2,3DO. Expand
Hydroquinone Dioxygenase from Pseudomonas fluorescens ACB: a Novel Member of the Family of Nonheme-Iron(II)-Dependent Dioxygenases
TLDR
N-terminal sequencing and peptide mapping and sequencing based on matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization--two-stage time of flight analysis established that the HQDO subunits are encoded by neighboring open reading frames (hapC and hapD) of a gene cluster, implicated to be involved in 4-hydroxyacetophenone degradation. Expand
Elucidation of the 4-Hydroxyacetophenone Catabolic Pathway in Pseudomonas fluorescens ACB
TLDR
Evidence is provided that hydroquinone is further degraded through 4-hydroxymuconic semialdehyde and maleylacetate to beta-ketoadipate and it is proposed that the hapC and hapD gene products are involved in the ring cleavage of Hydroquinone. Expand
